REYNOLDSVILLE – Reynoldsville Borough Council appointed Dr. Randy McCall as March Citizen of the Month for his years of service in his county chiropractic business and related awards.
Council President Bill Cebulskie presented McCall with the award during Monday night’s meeting. McCall has operated the Reynoldsville Chiropractic Life Center for 44 years, having opened it the same year he graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1977.
“I know he’s slowing down his training a little bit so he can maybe enjoy his camp and home a little bit more,” Cebulskie said.
McCall graduated from DuBois Area High School in 1973 and was one of the last two students accepted into Palmer straight out of high school. He attended Palmer Junior College and Palmer College of Chiropractic concurrently, earning his bachelor’s and doctorate degrees.
“It was an honor and a pleasure to be in Reynoldsville. I graduated from DuBois High School and a lot of the guys I graduated with are still working folks around town and it was a pleasure. Some of the families we’ve been able to serve are fourth-generation, which has been a pretty cool thing for us,” McCall said.
In 2005 he graduated with a DPhCS degree, the First Class of Diplomats in Chiropractic Philosophy sponsored by the International Chiropractic Association.
He was recognized for outstanding contributions by the Chiropractic Fellowship of Pennsylvania in 1982. He also received the 1985 Dynamic Essential Speaker Award from Life Chiropractic College Atlanta, Georgia.
McCall was nominated by Governor Bob Casey and approved by the Pennsylvania Senate in 1988 to serve a four-year term on the Chiropractic State Board. He was subsequently nominated and served his second term on the Board in 1992.
From 1998 to 2008 he served as Counsel to the State Attorney for the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners at Northwestern College of Chiropractic for Part IV of the National Board and as Counsel to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquecy.
“I’ve been very active in our profession all along, but I think my wife (Wanda) should be the one who gets the Reynoldsville award. She was the cheerleading coach for the Falcons, the Girl Scouts, and the DuBois High cheerleading crew. Since we had four daughters, my job was to take care of patients and her job was to keep the kids busy. So she’s competed with a lot more things around town than I have, so in many ways this should be her recognition more than mine, but it’s an honor to be here and we look forward to being in Reynoldsville for a long time to come. “
He has also published numerous articles on topics such as chiropractic and dyslexia and chiropractic and politics. He is also the author of a short book, Life in a Tree Stand, which discusses relationships and living in central Pennsylvania and growing up in the area.
“This is where our hearts have been from the beginning and we hope it stays here for a long time,” McCall said.
